Release of "The Happiness Advantage" Business Book

The Happiness Advantage Book Cover

This week, Shawn Achor’s book was just released! It’s called "The Happiness Advantage." As you can imagine, I have read many business books. Almost all of them have great advice, research, ideas, and suggestions for improving management, teambuilding, service, and personal success. The downside of most business books is that they are very serious - and often so filled with data, that it can be a tough read.

"The Happiness Advantage" is different! This is truly an engaging book that is not only informative but also funny. As I was reading the book, I found myself laughing out loud. In fact, I was laughing so much that people in the office asked me, "What’s so funny?" But the other fascinating part of the book is the research that Shawn has uncovered. We have always been taught that if you work hard, you’ll be successful...and if you’re successful, then you will be happy. The research that Shawn and his colleagues in the field of positive psychology have shown is that we all work better when we are happy. And the good news is that anyone can improve his or her level of happiness. There are many "take aways" listed in the book that will help you improve your happiness level on a daily basis. It’s all in his book - and I highly recommend that you read it.

Shawn Achor is a professor at Harvard University. For years, his course on happiness was the most popular and highly attended course with the undergraduates.

Here at Enterprise Media, we have fully embraced "The Happiness Advantage" and are releasing a video with Shawn and his humorous demonstrations and stories from his research entitled "The Happiness Advantage." This program will be released at the end of this year. I guarantee that you will laugh out loud reading his book and that it will perk you up and give you some great ways to handle those "difficult" people that you have to deal with both in the office and in life.

Here is a video clip from YouTube where Shawn shares some of the ideas that led him to write the book:
